Overview

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird' Meet Scout, the narrator of this book. Her story is one of Deep South summers, fights at school and playing in the street. The spooky house of her mysterious neighbour, Boo Radley, sags dark and forbidding nearby. Her brother, Jem, and her friend, Dill, want to make Boo come outside. Her story is about justice. When Scout?s father, a lawyer, agrees to defend a black man against an accusation by a white girl, he must battle the prejudice of the whole town.It?s about imagination - not just the kind you need for childhood games. Because you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.Vintage Children?s Classics is a twenty-first century classics list aimed at 8-12 year olds and the adults in their lives.

Reviews

Harper Lee announced she would be releasing a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird this summer - 55 years after her debut. Go Set a Watchman, completed in the mid-50s but lost for more than half a century, was written before To Kill A Mockingbird and features Scout as an adult * Guardian * No one ever forgets this book * Independent * Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable * Truman Capote * There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written * Sunday Times * A hundred pounds of sermons on tolerance, or an equal measure of invective deploring the lack of it, will weigh far less in the scale of enlightenment than a mere eighteen ounces of new fiction bearing the title To Kill a Mockingbird * The Washington Post, 1961 *


Harper Lee announced she would be releasing a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird this summer - 55 years after her debut. Go Set a Watchman, completed in the mid-50s but lost for more than half a century, was written before To Kill A Mockingbird and features Scout as an adult Guardian No one ever forgets this book Independent When I first read it at 11...I loved that the narrator was a girl with the marvellously un-girly name of Scout. I loved her unsentimental nature, her sharp tongue, her volubility, and her humour... The best novels are those that are important without being like medicine; they have something to say, are expansive and intelligent but never forget to be entertaining and to have character and emotion at their centre. Harper Lee's triumph is one of those. -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Guardian When I first read it at 11...I loved that the narrator was a girl with the marvellously un-girly name of Scout.

The best novels are those that are important without being like medicine; they have something to say, are expansive and intelligent but never forget to be entertaining and to have character and emotion at their centre. Harper Lee's triumph is one of those. -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Guardian The way in which Lee weaves the book into its whole is magical and effortless. I read the book to my daughters last year, when they were the same age as Scout and Jem, and they fell in love with it, as I did before them. Today, my ten-year-old has gone to Youth Club with a printout of her heroes: Obama, her brother, and Harper Lee. -- Roshi Fernando Independent
